Hyacinths blooming by the front door.

If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft, And from thy slender store two loaves alone to thee are left, Sell one, and with the dole. Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.

~ Saadi (1184-?1283), Persian poet

In the language of flowers, one of the meanings of the hyacinth is “a constant source of joy.”

Looks like a very fun time. I love when family congregates in one place for a holiday. Nothing like it in the world. Very special indeed. Your bun-cakes look really good, and cracked me up. Are they cake inside? I guess that WOULD be a cake ( :
Enjoyed your proverb too, and the gorgeous flowers. Are those from your garden? Spring must be popping out again. Thanks for sharing your day. We had a turkey that got run over by a log truck. He was Goo-ood!

·

It was a wonderful weekend! I'm glad that turkey didn't sacrifice his life in vain! We had grocery store ham... Not nearly as resourceful, but today I am using the ham bone to make bean soup.

holiday a very fun friend,great photography @melinda010100

·

Thank you! I'm happy you liked it!

Those bunny cakes are adorable !

I gave my Mom a hyacinth. There were three bulbs and the blooms on one was opening. It smelled so good. The very best aroma therapy there is. :)

I love seeing a table full of happy family.

·

I love getting hyacinths as gifts! There are so many wonderful springtime smells, aren't there?

·
·

There sure are. I just brought home a Star Jasmine vine. I'm hoping it will climb the corner of my back porch. It made my car smell SO good. I wish they would grow inside. :)

Lauren's bunny are fantastic! Outstanding job ))

And photos of a whole family - my favorite! I so much miss my holidays with a whole big family... ❤💖

·

I treasure every time that we all get to be together. The grand kids are growing up and I know the time will come when they all have their own places that they need to be and we won't be able to be together like we are now.

·
·

I think so. It's a "golden time"..

Buenas tardes amiga @melinda010100 le deseo que se encuentre bien al igual que su familia, que lindo es compartir con la familia amiga , gracias a Dios su familia está unidad y compartiendo con usted. Que tenga una feliz tarde.

·

Thank you, my friend! I hope you had a happy Easter, too!

What is Easter? Why you celebrate?

Easter is a day devoted to love, redemption, and renewal and for my part of the world the earth is waking up after a long cold winter and flowers are beginning to bloom and trees are getting new leaves. There are many reasons to be joyful!

·
·

Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb on the third day after his crucifixion. Easter is the fulfilled prophecy of the Messiah who would be persecuted, die for our sins, and rise on the third day

Bunny cakes and hyacinths! :) Happy Easter Melinda :)

·

Thanks, Ross! It was a good weekend!

Happy Easter Melinda! It´s great to see you with the family.

·

I love weekends when all the family is together!

·
·

Family is the most important thing to have on earth.

Hola sra @melinda010100 saludos dios bendiga su familia, realmente me agradó ver estas fotos dios los mantenga por muchos años unidos y llevar para de salud

·

¡gracias! Me encanta estar junto a mis hijos y nietos.

Beautiful picctures my dear. 💜

·

Thank you! It was a fun weekend!

·
·

Everyone looks very happy

your shots give us the feeling of how fun your easter was I am glad for you and your family,

those bunny cakes are so cool

·

I love how confident she is in the kitchen. The last time she was here she wanted to make brownies, and I did not have a brownie mix. So she just found a recipe and made them some from scratch. They were better than any that I have ever made using a mix.

I love it when they are all here.

·
·

Thats great she is will to research and go for it, seeing those bunny cakes I thought she was an experienced cook they look so good :)

·
·
·

I guess she is as experienced as a 12 year old can be!
🙂

·
·
·
·

WOw something so fancy at 12 that is impressive

Glad to see you with your family, happy easter

·

Thanks! We all had a wonderful time!

Can't have Easter without bunny cake, @melinda010100. :)

It does look like you had a very good time. Holidays like these are about having family near, to share a meal and continue to build the bonds of life and love.

We had both our sons and their small young families over for the weekend. That was the first Easter such has happened, following the first Christmas. I think we've had a Thanksgiving prior to this when we traveled to them, but since that time they've been moving between here and eastern Idaho where they were going to school, just not at the same time.

So, the little ones are adjusting to one another, the oldest of the two needing to learn that it's okay if she shares her parents and grandparents with her little cousin, and so forth. Her mom is supposed to deliver in the next couple of weeks when the sharing ramps up exponentially. :)

·

Oh yeah, lots of sharing lessons ahead!

I love having them all here. Everyone just crowds in and the kids sleep on the floor and the couch and the adults get the guest room. Everyone cooks and cleans and I mostly get to sit back and enjoy it all!

You have a beautiful family

·

Thank you! So do you!

I am late wishing you Happy Easter, but in my defence the holiday is not over (we will celebrate it this week).;-)
You have wonderful family and it is lovely to be together. The bunny cakes are gorgeous and must be very delicious.

·

I really adore each one of them! I hope your Easter week is lovely!

I am glad that you were able to spend quality time on Easter with your family.

·

Thanks! It was a good weekend!

cake looking yummy... it's seen that you had an great family get together.... wish u a happy easter...

·

It was a lovely weekend! Lauren's bunnies were round cakes, cut in half, then frosted together with the flat side down. They were really good!

It looks like an amazing day spent with the family! I love those little bunny cakes and the beautiful flowers. What a crowd you had!

Happy belated Easter!

Happy belated Easter @melinda010100 and it's good to see all the family around the table to share a meal together.
I've never seen bunny cakes before. They look tasty and well executed by Lauren. Well done.

We're back from the trip to Cornwall and feel kinda resurrected to be back online. 😊

I thought my part of the country was bad for wifi but Cornwall is in the dark ages still! At least where we were staying.

It was good to have some time to reflect on the future.

·

It was a fun weekend with everyone here! I am glad you are back!

·
·

Good to be back. Those well meaning people that say 'take a break from the web' just need to try it for a week or three haha. It is virtually impossible to do anything without the internet.

I had to see a doctor when I was away and thank god for the National Health Service intranet I got seen. I've got a broken rib!

We really are far too dependant on the web and if it disappears, we are all in big trouble.

·
·
·

Oh no! Broken ribs are so painful! I am so sorry. 😪

My life revolves around the internet. My social life, ordering groceries or restaurant meals, and the 1001 times each day that I use it to answer a question I have. I can't even imagine trying to live life without it
Next time you travel will you check first to be sure the place you are staying has WiFi available? When I travel I depend on it to get current information about the places I want to visit and get my questions answered about things I see during the day

Take it easy and no coughing!

·
·
·
·

It is amazing how the web has changed things. How on earth did we survive without it? I remember travelling across France with a huge paper map years ago. Glad to see the back of those days lol

You would think that England would be geared up with high speed web access. My crap Cambridge connection feels fast now compared to Cornwall. It really is pretty shocking?

Coughing, laughing and sneezing are all painful. I will check for web access now before I travel anywhere. First world problems hey?

·
·
·
·
·

Weather information, flower identification, downloading a book to my kindle, contacting my doctor to renew a Rx. Everything I do uses the internet! I still love maps, though.

Take good care of yourself.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Yep all of the above for me too. I've been teaching people to use computers for the last 30+ years and it still boggles my brain how far we have come and how far we still have to go.
Imagine what the next 10 years will bring?

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I know! I hope I can keep up. All the technology we have today makes it so much easier for me to live alone and not have to rely on others for my every need!

Looks like quite the party! Those bunny cakes look fun! ... and kind of scary! lol.

On the topic of Easter, do you ever get Peeps? My sister put one in the microwave once, and it was hilarious to watch.

·

Yeah... It's those lifesaver mouths! I did suggest she might want to use something else, but she was happy with their smiles!

My daughter was telling me about Peeps jousting in the microwave, but I think that just sounds like a waste of a good Peep!

·
·

Ha! Well, Peeps always seemed kind of gross to me, so it was fun to watch them turn into giant bunny blob demons. Plus, I didn't have to clean the microwave!

Howdy again Melinda! Another beautiful post! Love those bunny cakes. lol.

·

They were really good cakes.... I'm wishing there was still a piece or two left!
